 Hello All, 
Its been a while since Ive been on this website. I had the micropouch done with Dr. Sapala in 2005. I went from 240 to 140 and have gained 50lbs since then. Ive tried everything to get the weight off but nothing seems to work! 
I just wanted to know if any of you have gained weight 6yrs after wls and what have you done to lose the weight. Has anyone had a revision done after gaining 50lbs? Is that even possible?

Please help.

Best, 

JT

I had RNY in 2005. I lost 150 lbs but have since gained 50 lbs in the last yr. I am going to start the 5 day pouch test tomorrow. It seems everything I eat causes me to gain wt but I know thats an excuse. I'm eating more than I'm burning. Is my metabolism broke? I don't know but it seems so. I have wondered about the revision but not sure. I also don't want to face my surgery Dr. I feel like a failure with him. My wt is right at 200 & I'm trying to fight back. Time will tell.
